While sponsors expect Principal Investigators (PI) to complete projects in the time indicated in the grant proposal, on occasion additional time is needed. A no-cost extension provides the PI additional time to complete the scope and objectives of the project without additional funds being provided by the sponsor. Requests are not permitted solely for the purpose of spending remaining funds. However, you may expend remaining funds during the no-cost extension period in order to complete the original scope of work. In addition, please note that the Principal Investigator must maintain his/her current level of effort during the no-cost extension period and all compliances must remain current.
